Traffic Jams is available on Oculus Quest and PC VR and supports Oculus store cross-buy. A PlayStation VR release follows later this Australian winter.

“After over a year of hard work, we are very happy and proud to share Traffic Jams with the world,” said Yannis Bolman, CEO at Little Chicken Game Company. “From the first demo, we’ve seen people have so much fun with it. Through the power of VR, players get so immersed that we’ve seen testers jump around when cars started crashing. We put a lot of effort into making the game fun and rewarding, whether you’re a seasoned player or new to VR. We’re excited to see everyone let out their inner traffic controller and control traffic in their own way!”
In the world of Traffic Jams all traffic lights have gone out. It’s up to you to keep traffic flowing in the face of outrageous events and flagrant road rage! Starting out on a quiet corner in a small town, job offers soon start pouring in from iconic cities around the globe where you’ll need to guide rude pedestrians, impatient drivers, and the occasional meteorite along before road rage strikes. Sound easy? Think again! This wacky VR game throws in monsters, (un)natural disasters, and up to 4 non-VR friends in (couch) party mode!
